How do you envision your teaching changing over the next 5 years?
In some ways, 5 years is a long time but in many ways it is a very, very short time. The thought of going from having a 5 year old to a 10 year old makes it seem like a long time, but the speed with which technology and teaching pedagogy are changing makes it seem like a short time. I am adopting new teaching techniques and new technology as fast as I can learn them but I am in a unique teaching position in that I have no class of my own to try them out with. I can only move as fast as the teachers I work with are willing to go (and that varies tremendously).
So, how will my teaching change over the next 5 years?
The same way that it does now - adapting on the fly, learning as I go, co-teaching, co-learning, collaborating to help students and teachers be as successful as they can possibly be.
Before you decide that this is a bit of a cop out answer, let me just tell you that in discussing the question with my husband, he looked at me and said "That's a bit of a difficult one to answer, given that 5 years ago you probably didn't see yourself teaching with iPads now did you?" All I could do was nod in agreement.
